City Sewer Line Expansion And Rehab Project Continues
Aimee Madden-City of Cedartown Public Information Officer
The City of Cedartown is currently undergoing a major sewer expansion and rehabilitation project. Up until this week, construction has been limited to the East Avenue and the Hwy. 278 East corridor. However, crews began construction this week in the East Girard Avenue and Mildred Street area, according to City officials.
Construction will continue westward along Girard until the new expansion reaches the wastewater treatment plant on Branch Street, explained Cedartown City Manager Bill Fann. “During this period residents will encounter minor traffic delays and normal construction noise during regular business hours along with possible dusty or muddy conditions depending on the weather,” Fann said.
City officials advise residents to contact 770-748-3220 if issues or concerns beyond normal construction conditions are encountered. “The City’s engineer is in daily contact with the contractors in charge of this project. If a resident has issues beyond the scope of normal construction circumstances, please let us know and we will pass the information along immediately. We appreciate the patience of our residents during this time of progress,” Fann said.
The project timeline is expected to continue into the summer months, as crews navigate cautiously and move slowly in residential areas, cleaning up as they go, Fann explained. Once complete, the new 12-inch sewer line will run the length of five miles and will replace the City’s old line, which was smaller in diameter and functioning at capacity.
